gautengNews24 reports that striking forensic pathology workers have returned to work following a court order, the Gauteng department of health said on Sunday.  

They embarked on an unprotected strike on 7 March, demanding formal training from the Department of Health and bodies have been piling up at government mortuaries across Gauteng.  The Germiston mortuary was the worst affected.  On Thursday, the health department applied for a court interdict against the striking workers and the Labour Court ruled on Friday that all workers should return to work with immediate effect.  Gauteng health department spokesperson Lesemang Matuka indicated that the Health Professions Council had finalised the requirements for a formal training course.
